  1. [Exsudative age-related macular degeneration treatment results in patients registered in the nation-wide AMADEUS register].

    Ceska a slovenska oftalmologie : casopis Ceske ... 66(3):110 (2010) PMID 21137471

    We found the loss of less than 15 letters of the ETDRS chart in 62.2 % of treated eyes. During the 12 months follow-up period of 205 patients treated with Lucentis in monotherapy, receiving at least 3 injections of Lucentis, we found the loss of less than 15 letters of the EDTRS chart in 82.0 % of t...
  2. Angioid streaks - clinical course and photodynamic therapy. Case report.

    Neuroendocrinology Letters 30(5):558 (2009) PMID 20035267

    Angioid streaks develop as a result of damage to the Bruch's membrane. They may occur as idiopatic angioid streaks or in association with pseudoxanthoma elasticum, Paget's disease and the haemoglobinopathies. Other pathologies of the fundus of eye may coexist together with angioid streaks, such as d...
  3. Combination of photodynamic therapy and immunomodulation: current status and future trends.

    Medicinal Research Reviews 28(4):632 (2008) PMID 18161883 PMCID 2561284

    Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has been used for the treatment of nonmalignant and malignant diseases from head to toe. Over the last decade its clinical application has gained increasing acceptance around the world. Pre-clinical studies demonstrate that, in addition to the direct local cytotoxicity and...
  4. Massive apoptotic cell death of human glioma cells via a mitochondrial pathway following 5-aminolevulinic acid-mediated photodynamic therapy...

    Journal of Neuro-Oncology 83(3):223 (2007) PMID 17245620

    These results indicate that a dysfunction of MMP is followed by mitochondrial cytochrome c release, which triggers apoptosis through a mitochondrial pathway. ALA-PDT induces massive apoptosis due to the direct activation of a mitochondrial pathway, which is resistant to many anti-apoptotic processes...
  5. Intravenous repeated-dose toxicity study of ZnPcS2P2-based-photodynamic therapy in Wistar rats.

    Photochemical & Photobiological Sciences 5(11):1006 (2006) PMID 17077896

    The purpose of the current study was to investigate the potential repeated-dose toxicity of ZnPcP2S2-based photodynamic therapy (ZnPc-PDT) in Wistar rats. The animals were administered ZnPcS2P2 intravenously ten times successively every 4 d and irradiated with a 670 nm laser light for 6 min at subse...
  6. Correlation of optical coherence tomography and fundus fluorescein angiography following photodynamic therapy for choroidal neovascular memb...

    British Journal of Ophthalmology 90(3):304 (2006) PMID 16488950 PMCID PMC1856971

    The presence of subretinal fluid, intraretinal fluid in the form of gross cystoid macular oedema, or sponge-like retinal thickening, or a retinal thickness more than 350 mum correlates with leaks on FFA and so suggests the need for repeat PDT....
  7. Photodynamic therapy for the treatment of erythema, papules, pustules, and severe flushing consistent with rosacea.

    Journal of drugs in dermatology : JDD 5(2 Suppl):6 (2006) PMID 16485874

  8. Successful treatment of an extensive verrucous carcinoma with topical 5-aminolevulinic acid-mediated photodynamic therapy.

    Journal of Oral Pathology and Medicine 34(4):253 (2005) PMID 15752262

    We tested the efficacy of this new treatment protocol of ALA-PDT for an extraoral verrucous carcinoma (VC) lesion at the right mouth angle and an intraoral VC lesion at the right buccal mucosa of a 56-year-old male areca quid chewer and smoker. The extraoral tumor was cleared after six treatments of...
  9. A review of treatments for macular degeneration: a synopsis of currently approved treatments and ongoing clinical trials.

    Current Opinion in Opthalmology 15(3):221 (2004) PMID 15118509

    Advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis of age-related macular degeneration and choroidal neovascularization have resulted in the emergence of pharmacotherapies targeting various aspects of angiogenesis. Preliminary results with the new agents have been encouraging. Moreover, longer follow...
  10. Treatment of idiopathic subfoveal choroidal neovascular lesions using photodynamic therapy with verteporfin.

    American Journal of Ophthalmology 134(1):62 (2002) PMID 12095809

    There is no widely accepted method for treating subfoveal idiopathic CNV and all previously investigated methods have had a significant number of serious side effects. Although the follow-up time and the number of patients in this pilot study were limited, the encouraging results and lack of complic...
